I hope this helps you make your decision. I would be happy if ford would buy back this never ending money sucking 6. I follow all Preventative Maintenance schedules. Bought it used in 09 with 100k on it. The truck had 60,000 miles on it.
Had it fixed at ford now it leaks raw fuel out all the time. Ford owners have been arguing that the 6. My friend had his fixed and has over 330,000 miles. Please email if you have any suggestions. Your local dealer should be nice enough to run one for your if not then try another dealer. I have heard of a few people who had a crack in the engine and that was where the water was going.
If you want to check out our , we have more options there. In 2012, we got a hold of some bad diesel. However, it is difficult to prove any correlation between the engine's model year and the percentage of trucks experiencing technical difficulties. And for the price of 65,000 to 95,000 grand for a truck is just plain stupid! I need to replace two vehicles in my fleet and will not consider a Ford due to these problems. What is a decent price for a new motor. Fixing it is not an option as the engine has so many issues known to Ford that it would not worth fixing the current problem. Vehicle now has 320,000 miles.
I sent Ford, and the Federal Trade Commission, all the information with scans of my bills and receipts. They service them just like they always have all their other trucks. I know it does because I have done it. The sensor causes the truck to die for no apparent reason in the middle of the highway or on a back small road. We back again on wenesday December 31st, 2014 to fix and bring it back.
The unique exhaust flow design is said to increase thermal efficiency of the turbocharger. Over the years, I have owned a few 7. Let us stand together on this principle and express it when the opportunity present itself. Those are still a little out of my price range right now though. Some of these may not have been needed but I wanted to start with what I know is good and go from there so I replaced them anyway.
I purchased my 2004 6. Fourth time, oil pressure problems, 1800 dollars. We still owe 6,000 on it and has sat for two years now and we are just out of our minds trying to figure out what repairs really need to be made. I should probably do the egr delete as well before that causes big problems. That resolved the issues for a lot of customers. The International variation of the 6.
I was told by the local Ford mechanic that these engines were actually made by International and there are design flaws in the bolts that hold the engine in place. I have a 2006 F250 turbo diesel lariat with tow and off road packages,and engine heater, that I bought new in 06. Ford should reimburse consumers for their expenses related to engines with design flaws from the factory. I have 04 250 sd 1 set injectors under warranty, 3 sets out of my pocket. If it is truly only a 6 quart capacity will adding an additional quart hurt anything. I pick the truck up they said we only did the three injectors. I have an f-350 6.
I have a 2004 Ford F-350 6. They are flawed, but that can be overcome. I was not told for any problems. There is a guy in Somerset Kentucky that knows how to make the 6. I knew I had a problem. If i had, we likely would never have purchased a 6. I found a lot of help from Powerstrokehelp.
Only option our deisel guy said is to put the same engine in and resell immediately. The truck is no longer under warranty. Shame on Ford for not taking care of these known issues. I feel the truck has done its job for me. I left for Arkansas work trip on Monday, following taking his camper. Good luck and do take extra good care of that truck. The harness is modular and works with both V10 and V8.
This is the first Power Stroke not manufactured by long time partner, International Navistar. I have had many 6. They do not have any additional information on open cases against Ford. Blew out that un-burnt fuel and clean out the turbo. This truck has only 108,000 miles on it! I purchased this truck based on my years of good experiences with Ford products.
